The Committee seeks to develop and communicate the science related to how the consumption of LNCSs can contribute to overall health and wellness.

To carry out this mission, the committee focuses on four areas:

  • The role of LNCSs in taste perception and food choices.                                         
  • The physiologic and metabolic effects of LNCSs.         
  • The role of LNCSs in health and disease.    
  • Research approaches and study designs to investigate effects of LNCSs in the diet.

Use of Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) as a Health-Based Benchmark in Nutrition Research Studies that Consider the Safety of Low-Calorie Sweeteners (LCS): a Systematic Map

This paper aims to assess how benchmarks for safe levels of consumption of Low-Calorie Sweeteners (LCS) are utilized by researchers. In addition, it explores how varying use of such benchmarks may contribute to challenges in understanding and applying nutritional guidance for LCS consumption.
